Uplighting!!! I LOOOOOOVE uplighting and always dreamed of having it! *Le sigh* Maybe for the 20 year vow renewal. 😉

I second uplighting, we’re still going to price it out but its the first thing we’re cutting from our budget if we can’t afford it.

It’s not really an item it’s a venue! I love my venue, but if money was no object I would be getting married at the Biltmore in Los Angeles

Seriously…if there was no budget (and because I am happy with everything we’re doing thus far)…I would have Michael Buble during the cocktail hour!!!!  Totally dreaming here.

I second the accomodations & travel…  mainly because if money weren’t an option, I would be getting married in Austin, Texas where my wonderful fiance and I currently live.  We’re heading back to our hometown to get married with our family and friends.

I would invite more people, pay my family/friends way to Chicago from the East Coast (I NEED MY MATRON OF HONOR TO LIVE HERE UNTIL ITS OVER!) and be less stressed…….

 

 

Even with our wedding a year away I am already overwhelmed

Can I have two???

I would extend our open bar and have it open during dinner and cocktail hour! 

And I would uplighting and more floral decor in the reception hall!

Oops that’s three… I can’t restrict my dreams 😉

I would have had a destination wedding and go full out at a really nice location, pay for the travel and accomodations for the people that I ACTUALLY WANT to invite.

My FI and I just had this conversation the other day!  I would have Ellen Degeneres come and be the MC/host.  I LOVE her and think she’s hilarious!!

But more realistically, if we put a little more money into our budget (which I don’t want to do), I’d have the ceremony at a beautiful classical music hall.  It costs $1500 for just the ceremony and extra for a rehearsal, but I refuse to pay that.  Even the $300 we’re paying right now for our booked location is too much!

@Mrs. Meowerson: Me too. I would want to have the event at small resort (I know exactly which one) and pay for the whole weekend. I would happily stick to all of my other economy choices, but this would be so much fun.
